Welcome to Hospitality Hall

Blending functionality with aesthetics, Hospitality Hall sets a new standard of excellence in hospitality education.

A New Home for UNLV’s Flagship Program

UNLV’s long-held vision to one day build an academic facility solely dedicated to its top-ranked hospitality program is now a reality. Thanks to the support of the global hospitality community and the state of Nevada, the Harrah College of Hospitality has found a place to call home in Hospitality Hall, the new state-of-the art academic hub for the next generation of industry leaders.

Designed for the Student of Today

Spacious common areas, advanced technology, and flexible classrooms provide the ideal setting for students to master both the theoretical and practical elements of the hospitality industry. Hospitality Hall’s pending LEED Silver Certification means our students have the added benefit of learning in a space that is environmentally friendly.
